and these associated disciplines

The kettlebell marathon is one of the origins of kettlebell sport.

 

- Until 2010, it was considered more of a personal challenge than a competitive sport.

Today the popularity of kettlebell marathons is increasing around the world, and the IKMF is leading the way in standardizing rules and promoting competitions.

 

- Since 2020, IKMF has been open to other disciplines such as IKMF games (created by Stéphane Dauvergne, IKMF founder and president) and pentathlon (created by Valéry Fedorenko) in order to reach out a wider audience.

Now IKMF can be proposed competition from children (7 years) to senior (>70 years).

 

- Since 2021 due to the large number of events in competition IKMF has decided to divide its world championship into 2 parts:

 

- First part in April: IKMF games (40kg only) + Kettlebell half marathon (30 minutes) +  pentathlon 1 kettlebell (classic)

- Second part in November: IKMF games (only with 2 kettlebells) + Marathon kettlebell (60 minutes) + Pentathlon 2 kettlebell 

 

- From 2023.

 

IKMF will award a belt (boxing or wrestling type belt) to the country that has won the most medals in the general team classification.

A cash prize will be offered, to the best in their category of body weight, movement, age and sex. During a draw which will be carried out the day before the competition, during the opening ceremony.
